Houston, 25 July 2007
Atos Origin, an international IT services company, signed a five-year agreement with Catalent Pharma Solutions, a leading provider of advanced technologies and outsourced manufacturing and packaging services to the global pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. Atos Origin will provide data center services–including a new email environment, help desk support, and server and security administration. More than 10,000 Catalent users around the world will be supported by the new infrastructure.
Atos Origin was chosen as the implementation partner for Catalent Pharma Solutions because of its tailored solutions, cultural fit and ability to execute the immediate and strategic needs for managed operations support.
Several Atos Origin North America locations will be involved in the project. Data center hosting and global email will be provided by the primary data center in Arlington, Texas. Help desk support will be sourced out of the newly upgraded service center in Houston, Texas. End user support will be provided via remote support from the Atos Origin Technical Competency Center located in Houston in combination with onsite personnel at the various Catalent sites in the U.S.
Paul Stewart, Executive Vice President and CEO of Atos Origin North America explains: “As a true global leader in IT services, we have been entrusted with managing mission-critical environments for such entities as the Olympic Games and global customers such as Akzo Nobel, Philips, Schlumberger, and Columbia House. We are elated to add Catalent Pharma Solutions to our key account list and will deliver best-in-class services.”
Roy Satchell, CIO at Catalent Pharma Solutions concludes: “As a newly independent company, Catalent is looking forward to a long-term and mutually beneficial relationship with Atos Origin that operates in a spirit of partnership. We believe Atos Origin is a technology service provider that can bring us significant value throughout the course of the relationship.”
